AllMusic Review by

Only the Best of the Ames Brothers is a three-CD box set with 72 songs that collects the following six albums from the traditional pop group originally released on RCA Victor: Hello Italy!, Ames Brothers with Hugo Winterhalter, Knees Up! Mother Brown (And Other Funny Songs), Destination Moon, and two albums by Ed Ames, My Cup Runneth Over and Who Will Answer? Whether there are enough fans to warrant such an elaborate set could be argued, but the Collectables label should be given credit for keeping titles like this in print for those who want them.
